Brazen coyotes terrorize British Columbia park


Authorities in British Columbia, Canada’s westernmost province, are planning a cull of coyotes after a spike of canine attacks. Two children and one man were attacked in Vancouver’s scenic Stanley Park on Tuesday night, bringing the number of attacks recorded in the park to 45. None of the three victims were badly injured, according to the province’s conservation officer service. Stanley Park is now shut to the public overnight in attempt to stop attacks. The park will now close its doors to visitors at 19:00 local time, and remain closed until 7:00 in the morning. “The [conservation service] cannot stress enough to avoid Stanley Park, especially during the dawn and dusk hours, when coyotes tend to be more active,” the agency wrote on Twitter this week.
